It gets absolutely slaughtered by a 7-year-old-older mobile CPU.
The Zhaoxin CPUs are based on tech that is competitive with Intel Silverton on a clock-for-clock basis. Not modern Intel Core. Definitely not Ryzen 2.
Tiger Lake and Zen 3 are just around the corner. That isn't to say that Zhaoxin can't improve upon their microarch and become competitive. But they are far from it today, and it seems unlikely they will make strides that will even catch them up with ARM Server and Desktop chips at clock parity.
Intel as well as AMD have backdoors inside their PSP or equivalent module.
All that speed is worth nothing if you cant count on your machine protecting your privacy.
They can see inside everything in your machine as trivially as if they were connected to it as an administrator.
For self-reliance such efforts are crucial.
What is this based o, anyway - MIPS ?
Why ? CIA/MOssad is heavily present in EU. Both are cleaning the terrain for upcoming USD crash and Israel grafting onto the EU. ALL communications are monitored and surveillance equipment is mounted on massive scale. Meantime, Bruce Lee wants above all to sell his stuff. Yes, Huawei mecrhcandise is massively used for surveillance, but CIA/MOssad is doing that. EU has even opened unofficall doors for massive import of HUawei stuff effectively almost without taxes - just so that they have a surveillance path with less oversight:
